Twitter by far is the best way of contacting journalists, but the best way of contacting journalists is to get their interest end of the fishing line by tenting them
The best thing you can do with your product is to have a really good press release online on your website and email, Twitter, and Facebook the link to this to relevant parties, or even better use hashtags and search systems/SEO
I agree with Jessica's answer. I think email is preferable, as you aren't worried about condensing your message into 140 character installments. Also, depending on how busy the journalist is, or how often they check tweets they receive from individuals they aren't following, they may not get back to you quick enough, if ever.
Also, many reporters put their email on their Twitter profile so it is an opening for an email pitch.
You can also try helpareporter.net or HARO! This is a good way to get in contact with journalists.
Along with other answers, the easiest and best way is to simply locate the staff listing for any publication online. Most journalists' email addresses are listed, and you can send a much more professional message that way rather than within the word count confines of a Tweet. Sending a Tweet will also appear amateurish or perhaps like something sent by a fan or follower. In your email, include any credentials you have and/or the complete story you hope to have covered.
I agree with many fellow posters that Twitter is an extremely viable way to contact and stay in touch with journalists. However, it is not a quick fix and requires patience and persistence.
The best way to develop a meaningful relationship with a journalist on Twitter is by following them, commenting on posts, retweeting and gradually building a relationship with them. Once you've done that, you can reach out to them regarding a particular story.
If you need something quicker, then I suggest direct contact either via telephone or email (a combination of both usually works for me). Good luck!
Yes Twitter is best place but you should write140 golden words to promote your work ,with very low cost i will give you excellent result
I say YES. Active journalist will always respond to your inquiry. Or else search using #tag and try to contact them through the link source.
